Marc Faber: I Am My Own Central Banker

Posted by Marc Faber: The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report

UnknownEveryone always says, I want to buy low and I want to sell high. So I think for me, of course I own a lot of gold, and I need to buy more to keep asset allocation between 25% in Real Estate, 25% in equities, 25% cash and bonds, and 25% gold. I need to buy more. So for me this is a very happy event. I don't like to buy gold at $1,900 like in 2011. I like to buy it here or lower.

Gold Broker: Do you think it will break under $1,000 like some people say?

Marc Faber: Look. The forecasting record of people is horrible, in particular, the forecasting record of the Federal Reserve. So, I don't know, maybe it will go below $1,000 but my sense is that it will not stay below $1,000. .... I would use the current weakness as a buying opportunity. ... I'm telling everybody, you as an investor, and me as an investor, we cannot trust the government. ... I am my own central banker. I keep my own physical gold. I do not trust anyone of these (unprintable word).

...the above posted on Marc's website Dec 4th. The following on Dec 3rd & Dec 2nd.

Harry Dent's Simple Strategy for Surviving Withdrawals from 'Markets on Crack'

dollaronrock580An aging world is a deflationary one, according to "The Demographic Cliff" author Harry Dent. He predicts a major, painful crash in the next two years based on population statistics and historic patterns. He has some positive short-term predictions for gold, and investment suggestions for how to be one of the ones still standing after the dust settles. 

The Gold Report: Your book, "The Demographic Cliff: How to Survive and Prosper During the Great Deflation of 2014–2019," predicted a great deflation based on demographic trends. Were you surprised by the strong stock market over the last year?

Harry Dent: Yes, I was. I'm always surprised. Bubbles go and go until they suck everybody in. It's been this way all throughout history. This is a bubble. It looks like a bubble, quacks like a bubble and tracks every bubble in history. It's going to burst, but we continue to have outside influences propping it up. The Federal Reserve announced tapering of quantitative easing, but then the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank stepped up their bond buying, and the markets are eating it up. 

I actually think we're probably not going to peak until early next year, perhaps around March, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average as high as 19,000. There are certain indicators we look for at a top. One we have already seen is small caps underperforming large caps without making new highs. That is one classic indicator. Another one is selling pressure increasing in a final rally, which shows you the smart money is leaving. That did not happen in this recent rally, as sharp as it was and as crazy as it looked. I call this the "markets on crack." 

Bubbles act like grains of sands dropped on the floor. They form a mound that gets steeper and steeper until at some point one grain of sand causes an avalanche. Something is going to happen here that governments can't respond to and control. Germany keeps weakening. China is showing signs of unraveling and cracking, but it hasn't totally burst. . .yet. 

This market is not going to crash 10% or 20%. It's going to crash worse than it did in 2008 and 2001 and 1930 and 1973. This is going to be the biggest crash ever.

TGR: What are the indicators that are warning you about this crash?

Bloody Amazing: Flying Defibrillator "Ambulance Drone" ....

Screen Shot 2014-11-27 at 2.51.48 AM...slashes response time to 1 minute from 10 & Heart Attack survival from 8% to 80%!!!

A Dutch engineer has created a flying defibrillator for emergency situations. The drone, called the Ambulance Drone, would be stationed at various points in the city. In an emergency, people on the scene can call it in and it arrives a few seconds later. he built-in defibrillator unit can be used by anyone and it allows doctors to monitor the situation after the shocks are administered.

The drone includes a webcam and loudspeaker and allows remote doctors to walk people on the scene through the process of attaching the electrodes and preparing the defibrillator. The creator, Alec Momont of TU Delft’s Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, said that 20% of people can operate a defibrillator without instruction and the number rises when they have prompts from trained personnel. 

‘Some 800,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest in the EU every year, and only 8% survive,’ Momont explains. ‘The main reason for this is the relatively long response time of the emergency services (approx. 10 minutes), while brain death and fatalities occur within 4 to 6 minutes. The ambulance drone can get a defibrillator to a patient inside a 12 km zone within one minute. This response speed increases the chance of survival following a cardiac arrest from 8% to 80%.’

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse or the New Dawn

fourFrom John Mauldin:

“For a central banker, deflation is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Death, Famine, Disease, and Deflation. It is helpful to understand that, before a person is allowed to join the staff or board of a central bank, he or she is taken into a back room and given DNA replacement therapy, inserting a gene that is viscerally opposed to deflation.”

Death:        There will be many more deaths – think Middle East, Ukraine, Africa, and the next big war.

Famine:     A shortage of food, whether inspired by drought, politics or war has been normal throughout history.  Today there are food shortages in many countries and there are nearly 50,000,000 people in the U.S. on food stamps (SNAP) – the modern equivalent of “bread lines” and “soup kitchens.”

Disease:    Ebola, AIDS and drug resistant TB, staph infections and more.

Deflation:
